Transformation presets

If you wish to apply the same transformations on many images, you can define presets and apply transformations only using the preset name (X).


Any resizing transformation or image filter can be included in a preset, as well as watermarks and image compression parameters.

Defining presets

You can define your presets in the admin panel, Image Settings / v7 Settings.

Using presets

Sample presets

preset name operations and filters
gallery_thumb w=250&h=250&f=gray
gallery_medium w=450&h=300&force_format=jpeg&q=85&radius=10
gallery_large w=1200&force_format=jpeg&optipress=2&wat=1&wat_gravity=northwest&wat_scale=60&wat_pad=20&wat_opacity=0.4

Here are a couple of images using the sample presets shown above.

Medium image w/ rounded corners


Large image, watermarked, JPEG w/ Optipress optimisation


Extending presets

You can use additional operations together with a preset. Here is an example:

preset name operations and filters
red_ref_number w=400&h=200&wat=1&wat_gravity=northeast&wat_pad=10&wat_font=Arial-Black&wat_fontsize=18&wat_colour=660000

An operation defined in any given preset cannot be overridden in the URL. For example, if a preset named small_img contains w=200, using /v7/original_image_url?p=small_img&w=400 will still yield a 200-pixel-wide image.
